AMG opens Asia sales and marketing office

RELATED TOPICS​

Affiliated Managers Group is opening an office in Hong Kong, extending the global institutional distribution capabilities of its Affiliates in the Asian marketplace.

AMG is a global asset management company with equity investments in leading boutique investment management firms. AMG’s innovative partnership approach allows each Affiliate’s management team to own significant equity in their firm while maintaining operational autonomy. AMG’s strategy is to generate growth through the internal growth of existing Affiliates, as well as through investments in new Affiliates. In addition, AMG provides centralised assistance to its Affiliates in strategic matters, marketing, distribution, product development and operations. The aggregate assets under management of AMG’s Affiliates are over USD300 billion in more than 350 investment products across a broad range of investment styles, asset classes and distribution channels.

“Asia’s growing pool of institutional investors requires sophisticated solutions and high-quality investment expertise. The Hong Kong office will put AMG Affiliates in a stronger position to build their brands, participate in new search activity and win new mandates,” says Nate Dalton (pictured), AMG’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. “Several of our Affiliates already maintain a presence in Asia, and these resources will provide a strong foothold for Affiliates looking to expand their profile in this region.”

Through this distribution platform, AMG will provide institutional investors in Asia with investment services and products offered by its Affiliates across multiple investment styles and asset classes including global equities, credit, currency and asset allocation. AMG’s Affiliates are recognised for their long-term track records, consistent adherence to their unique investment processes and the strength of their management teams. With sales and marketing offices covering Asia, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East, the AMG distribution platform enhances the global reach of its Affiliates’ marketing efforts, and clients outside the US now generate over 50 per cent of AMG’s earnings.

The Hong Kong office is managed by James Sim, Managing Director, who joined AMG from Columbia Management (formerly part of Bank of America Merrill Lynch), where he was CEO and Regional Head of Sales and Marketing for the Asia Pacific region responsible for management, sales and marketing, as well as client servicing. He previously held similar roles at Principal Global Investors and Morgan Stanley Asset Management. Sim received an MBA in Finance from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania and a BSEE from Purdue University.

Dalton adds: “We are pleased to have James lead our distribution effort in Asia. His detailed knowledge of the institutional marketplace and his long-standing contacts in the region will be an invaluable resource to our Affiliates going forward.”
